November NYC Events (11/08) (continued)

Pre Covid-19 we searched the internet everyday looking for the very best of What’s Happening, primarily on Manhattan’s WestSide, so that you didn’t have to.” We made it as easy as 1-2-3. Covid-19 has required some changes for the time being. Stay Safe.

Earlier today we covered Weekend Corona Culture (scroll down a bit to find it). Now, how about some more useful information.

Head to the historic boiler room of Chelsea Market to experience ARTECHOUSE, a new immersive art space. The latest exhibition there, “Celestial,” is an immersive digital experienced inspired by the Pantone Color of the Year 2020. The installation draws on “Classic Blue”’s inspirational qualities to take visitors beyond the skies. Sound, light, and color come together for a very Instagrammable experience. Open hours effective November 2nd are Monday-Thursday 1-9pm and Friday-Sunday 10am-10pm. “During these unprecedented times as a society we have found ourselves in a new state of existence. Before 2020 even began, Pantone selected Classic Blue as the color of the year because they saw it as the hue to sustain us during a time of change,” says Sandro Keserelidze, co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of ARTECHOUSE . “2020 ended up bringing changes no one expected, making the hue of Classic Blue, and the qualities it represents, more relevant now than ever before. We couldn’t think of a more timeless and timely theme to end the year and launch a new chapter of experiences.” artechouse.com/nyc

The 25 best cheap eats in NYC

Eat for $10 or less at the best restaurants with cheap eats in NYC

UPDATE, October 29 2020: Dining out in New York City has never been so different than this year and it’s not only because restaurants had to shut down their dining rooms for more than six months. The current crisis has put a renewed focus on more affordable food options, whether you’re scarfing down tacos from a food truck or ordering dumplings from a mom-and-pop business in Chinatown. At Time Out New York, we’ve done the homework for you in discovering dishes, old and new, that are all $10 or under. 

“The hefty prices at many New York restaurants can at times make the dining scene feel like it’s only for the elite. But some of the best restaurants in NYC still serve affordable bites for $10 or less. Dining on a budget in New York doesn’t have to feel like a constraint with our picks for jerk chicken, Sicilian-style pizza, creative veggie burgers, underground buffets, Cuban bakeries and more.”  (TONY)
